Hello HTeCV Families! My name is Chelsea Benson and I am a Cajun-girl from Southwest Louisiana-Laissez les bons temps rouler or Let the good times roll! In Louisiana we are all about food and family. I cook and love all Louisiana cuisine with Gumbo being my favorite! I fell in love with education during my three years teaching in Tacna, Perxc3xba–a city in the Atacama desert bordering Chile. When I reflect on my time there I am reminded that true learning happens when we work with children and families. As Dean of Students, I am committed to working with students to build and repair relationships. I received a Bachelor of Arts from Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL and hold 3 teaching credentials: a Multiple Subject and BCLAD from SDSU and a Special Education teaching credential from HTH. I am also a certified Translator/Interpreter. This year, I will continue learning in the HTH Graduate School Program where I will pursue a Master’s in Educational Leadership. In my free time I enjoy blasting Cumbia in my kitchen (Sonora Dinamita) and spending time with my husband and two babies, Amxc3xa9lie and Liam. This will be my twelfth year in education and my eighth year at HTeCV. I look forward to collaborating this year!
